Baz Luhrmann’s Gatsby trailer is here! So what do you think and will you go see Daisy Buchanan sparkle in 3-D?

All the magnificent music of that era and you ruin this movie with modern garbage? Shame on you. It’s crystal clear this whole film is aimed at the Twilight-loving crowd, a group mostly too young to know any better. A pity you’re so short-sighted that you can’t instead expand their view of history with music that actually fits the time period you’re attempting to recreate. Are you even aware of how relevant jazz was to the period? Shame. On. You.
What the HELL is with that soundtrack? And 3-effin’-D? What are you people snorting/smoking/shooting? Don’t you realize you’re dealing with a great American novel from the 1920s, not some cranked-out piece of crap fiction for contemporary, brain-dead tweens? I say bring back Robert Redford and Mia Farrow — ’cause this reeks.
well the opening song was random as hell but i do love Watch The Throne and the direction of it. this movie’s music is adapting to today’s generation while the original plot, dress, and storyline present the story as its written in the book. let the director use creativity to introduce the public to The Great Gatsby.
i personally think this move will awesome & i cant wait to see it!
Visually, it’s beautiful, but I have to say it’s creative aspects are incredibly misguided. The overblown symbolism already makes itself known in the two and half minute trailer, the music choices are gross approximations of what the audience of this sort of film should want, and as for 3D – it is superfluous and should not fit a film of this subject.
Psst… Often times the music that plays along behind the trailer isn’t even in the film until maybe the closing credits, if it’s in there at all. Don’t get too upset before you even see the actual movie!
It’s by the director of Romeo + Juliet, of course the soundtrack is going to be modern! I personally cannot wait to see this. Not sure about the 3D bit, but that’s only because I know it’ll make my ticket more expensive…
I think the musical choices are fine – they are just trying to update the movie to appeal to today’s audience. Also, its very typical of the director, Baz Luhrmann, to put in modern music (see: Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge) even when the setting is in the distant past.
Also, this trailer looks sick and I am really excited for the movie to come out!
People need to cool their jets. This is Baz Luhrmann, after all. You weren’t REALLY expecting an entire soundtrack full of period appropriate music, were you? That said, I also enjoyed watching Marie Antoinette and co. run around to New Order and The Strokes so…
Hey it’s only an ad, that doesn’t mean that those songs are going to be in the actual movie (also “No Church in the Wild” is really appropriate if you think about it). And its directed by the same guy who did “Moulin Rouge” and “Romeo & Juliet”, so expect a more modern/stylized approach, as opposed to the old movie (which I love but a lot of people don’t care for). From the ad it seems so-so, but there are some great actors and I hope it will come together well on screen, I can’t wait to see it!
Guys, geez, calm down. Did you not watch the original movie with Robert Redford? It’s was completely true to the novel. This one is just a vamped up version, the same as the maker did with Romeo and Juliet. Just for fun, it’s a different spin. I think it’ll be AWESOME, even if it’s a modern take and crazy and flimed as if the people are on acid. haha it’s gonna be great.
Calm down. What on earth was everyone expecting, it’s Baz Luhrmann! From the moment you heard he was directing it, you should have known this would be a highly stylized, visually appealing movie. Obvious it’s not going to be a completely historically accurate retelling, and if you expect that you’ll just be disappointed.
